It will be the first time in the history of NFL that Chiefs would be battling it out with the Buccaneers in Super Bowl. The Chiefs set their eyes on the Super Bowl in hopes of bagging their second in a row. Last year, they beat San Francisco 49ers 31-20 and conquered the Super Bowl 54. Chiefs can become just the eighth team in the history of NFL to win the championship consecutively by beating Tampa. The Buccaneers will make their second Super Bowl appearance. It was 2002 season of NFL when they made it by thrashing Oakland Raiders 48-21.
Tom Brady, Bucs’ sensational QB will be making his 10th Super Bowl record, the most by any quarterback in the history of NFL. Brady will become the first player ever to win seven NFL Championships if Bucs beat the Chiefs. The Buccaneers host Super Bowl 55 in their home stadium, making them the first team in the history of NFL to do so. The Buccaneers reach the Super Bowl 11-5, their best finish since 2005, in the regular season. Bucs dethroned the Washington, the Saints and Packers in the playoffs.
The Chiefs also hold a compelling record. Their quarterback, Patrick Mahomes will be aiming for the youngest QB in NFL history to win the Super Bowl multiple times. Mahomes was the MVP last year when Chiefs won the prestigious Super Bowl 54. The Chiefs reach the Super Bowl with a thumping franchise-record of 14 games in the regular season. Chiefs dethroned the Browns and Bills in the playoffs.
The Chiefs and Bucs have come face to face 13 times, with Buccaneers having a slight edge over Chiefs 7-6. Also, the Bucs holds a record for winning five steady games against Chiefs. Tampa will hold Super Bowl 55, and the Bucs are 4-3 in Tampa against Chiefs.
The first meeting of Bucs and Chiefs were on the inaugural 1976 season where Tampa lost every game. On December 16, 1979, Tampa Bay beat Chiefs 3-0 in Tampa. On September 5, 1993, Tampa lost to Chiefs 27-3 in Tampa. All eyes will be on the Buccaneers QB Tom Brady who might not play after this Super Bowl. Patrick Mahomes, on the other end, has a huge responsibility to make the Chiefs win the trophy. On November 2, 2008, Tampa Bay won 30-27 to the Chiefs, in Tampa. Once again, the battle is all set, and the most awaiting match of the season is about to begin.
Mahomes VS Brady
An unbelievable youth icon, Chiefs star-quarterback Patrick Holmes is the epitome of new age success. Mahomes and Brady have come across four times, each of their teams winning two times. It will be an exciting affair to witness the showdown between these two in Super Bowl 55.
There is absolutely no doubt that Mahomes has been playing his best game right now with 348.8 yards per game, 11 touchdowns and three interceptions as compared to veteran Tom Brady’s 300.5 yards per game, six touchdowns and five interceptions. However, Brady has played more games than Mahomes and is more experienced than Mahomes.
It is an affair that could move either way, but the hosts are always known for their strong defence. As for the Chiefs, they have enhanced their defence play since last year. When these two superpowers battle for the ultimate championship, it will be one hell of a ride.
It might be the last Super Bowl for the veteran Tom Brady, he will shove it all on the final night. Mahomes for Chiefs is in great form, and he is likely to perform so in the finale. There is not any defence out there to stop Patrick Mahomes if it is his day. But Tampa Bay has the potential to stop Mahomes by putting pressure. Besides, Tampa Bay have a dangerous red-zone threat in the form of Mike Evans. During the regular season, the 6-foot-5 receiver got 13 receiving touchdowns. Chiefs outsmart Tampa 27-24 that was not as close as the final score suggests this season. The Chiefs also have a well-built offence on the roster. It is the Chiefs all the way who can take the Super Bowl 2021 this season as they have a slight edge over Tampa.
